''I feel like a Niaja Boy'' Maduka Okoye speaks on why he chose Super Eagles over Germany

Lol, we know that feeling too. 😁.

Maduka Okoye has explained why he chose the Super Eagles over Germany.

Maduka Okoye says feeling like a Naija Boy was a motivating factor when he had to choose between representing either Germany or the Super Eagles of Nigeria in international football.

The 20-year old, who was born and raised in the city of Dusseldorf, was a relatively unknown name until Gernot Rohr included him in the Super Eagles squad that played Ukraine in a friendly in September.

The shot-stopper was then given his chance when he came on for Francis Uzoho in the 1-1 friendly draw with Brazil a month later.

“My advice is follow your heart,” Okoye said on the Nigeria Super Eagles YouTube Channel when asked what to consider when pledging international allegiance.

“You have to feel where the love is.

“I felt the love in Nigeria and I feel like a Naija boy that's why I chose Nigeria over Germany.”

Okoye also believes that a bright future awaits the Nigeria national team with the exciting crop of young players.
